        Mom pointed her chopsticks at me. “You see?” she said. “Right there. That’s exactly what I’m saying. You’re way too easily embarrassed. Your father and I are who we are. Accept it.”
     “And what am I supposed to tell people about my parents?”

The Glass Castle - Trailer

Starring Brie Larson, Naomi Watts, & Woody Harrelson

In theaters August 11, 2017 (USA)

You see me as one of your roses, dripping with blood, wilting in your beautiful hands. You plucked me from the endless field of extraordinary women because I am ordinary and insecure and an easy target, and I will forever despise you for your cruelty. I wonder how many other flowers are choking in vases, wishing they had fought to stay in fields of grass instead of being imprisoned in glass castles, envied but unloved.

She was always like an electric bomb that was fearlessly exploding… That is still a huge part of her magic, but she’s learned to control her craft so much more. Of course, everybody changes, but she is not up in the clouds… It’s why she comes across so great on-screen, because when she’s listening to other actors, it’s a reflection of how she listens in real life.

The Glass Castle (2017)

A young girl is raised in a dysfunctional family constantly on the run from the FBI. Living in poverty, she comes of age guided by her drunkard, ingenious father who distracts her with magical stories to keep her mind off the family’s dire state, and her selfish, nonconformist mother who has no intention of raising a family, along with her younger brother and sister, and her other older sister. Together, they fend for each other as they mature in an unorthodox journey that is their family life
